A GP, who lived in Station Road, St. Anne’s, has been suspended from his work as a doctor for eight months by the Medical Practitioners’ Tribunal Service (MPTS). The suspension announcement follows last year’s hearing at Preston Crown Court, when Dr Kevin Ross was found to have lied about his working hours during a bankruptcy claim and was found guilty of making a false statement. As a consequence, the 45 year old doctor was sentenced to a three month suspended jail term and ordered to pay £5,000 costs within a year.

Subsequently, the Medical Practitioners’ Tribunal Service inquired into the allegation that, on 22 February 2019, at Preston Crown Court, Dr Ross was convicted of one count of making a false written statement. It is also inquired into that on 29 March 2019, Dr Ross was consequently sentenced to three months in prison, suspended for twelve months.
The Blackpool Gazette has reported that following the MPTS disciplinary hearing, the family doctor has now been stripped of his ability to work in medicine for eight months.
